Parade of Progress

A huge hit at the 2023 Lake Mirror Classic. A special display featuring one-of-two restored GM Futurliners, along with classic 1953 models from the GM Motorama.

This is one of only two Futurliners restored to their original glory.  Experts from the National Auto and Truck Museum in Auburn, Indiana will host tours of the vehicle, answer questions and allow guests inside the Futurliner as well as allow photos and help take pictures for people as they experience this once in a lifetime opportunity!

The Futurliner will serve as the centerpiece of a very special display recreating the 1953 GM Motorama.
Featuring these very limited production vehicles:

  • 1953 Cadillac Eldorado
  • 1953 Buick Skylark
  • 1953 Oldsmobile Fiesta
  • 1953 Chevrolet Corvette

Experience the 70th anniversary of this famous Motorama display with the Futurliner on Saturday, October 21 at the Lake Mirror Concours d’Elegance around the beautiful setting of the Lake Mirror Promenade in Lakeland, FL.

There is an important historic element of this General Motors “Parade of Progress.” Back on Feb 11, 1936 this rolling world’s fair made its debut in Lakeland, Florida – yes in Lakeland.
